How to Convert Poundals to Meganewtons

To convert a measurement in poundals to a measurement in meganewtons, multiply the force by the following conversion ratio: 1.3825E-7 meganewtons/poundal.

Since one poundal is equal to 1.3825E-7 meganewtons, you can use this simple formula to convert:

meganewtons = poundals × 1.3825E-7

The force in meganewtons is equal to the force in poundals multiplied by 1.3825E-7.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 poundals to meganewtons using the formula above.
meganewtons = (5,000,000 pdl × 1.3825E-7) = 0.691275 MN

Poundals and meganewtons are both units used to measure force. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Poundal?

The poundal is a unit equal to the force needed to move one pound of mass at a rate of one foot per second squared.

The poundal is a US customary and imperial unit of force. It's also used in the foot-pound-second (FPS) system of units. Poundals can be abbreviated as pdl; for example, 1 poundal can be written as 1 pdl.

Poundals can be expressed using the formula: 1 pdl = 1lb × ft / s2

What Is a Meganewton?

One meganewton is equal to 1,000,000 newtons, which are equal to the force needed to move one kilogram of mass at a rate of one meter per second squared.

The meganewton is a multiple of the newton, which is the SI derived unit for force. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. Meganewtons can be abbreviated as MN; for example, 1 meganewton can be written as 1 MN.
